Oglala Sioux TribePine RidgeSD"Oglala Sioux Tribe has been impacted “pretty heavily” by the shutdown due to the fact that a large portion of its budget is federally funded."; "“A lot of our Indian Health Service employees live paycheck to paycheck and they’re dependent on this,” she said. “They’re already overworked and understaffed, and to have this economic worry on top of that, creates a more fragile environment that therefore impacts our citizens.”

If the shutdown continues, the concern is that it will hurt the Oglala Sioux’s economy and have real-life consequences for people, she said."

Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the Rosebud Indian Reservation, SD
RosebudSDRosebud Tribal Chairman Rodney Bordeaux worries what will happen if the federal money for food distributions on South Dakota reservations runs out before the shutdown ends.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has been shuttered in the federal government shutdown, and its programs to distribute food on reservations and offer food stamps are only funded through February.

What happens after February is on Bordeaux's mind.

South Dakota's tribes have begun preparing contingency plans if the shutdown continues to linger. Tribes' budgets in South Dakota are largely funded with federal dollars, and tribal leaders say they're concerned they'll run out of reserve funding, causing them to reduce tribal services and staff.

"The tribes are going to have to be looking at possibly setting up soup kitchens or some kind of an effort to make sure our people are fed," Bordeaux said.

Pawnee Nation of OklahomaPawneeOKThe Pawnee Nation in Oklahoma has started a Go Fund me page for tribal members impacted by the shutdown. “The Pawnee Nation has established a way for anyone to help make this government shutdown a bit less stressful for their families by contributing towards a fund used to buy groceries,” the Go Fund Me page said. “We can only imagine the stress this shutdown has been on the federal employees and their families who in some cases live paycheck to paycheck and as of today now are expected to work for no pay till the government reopens,” said Pawnee Nation President Bruce Pratt. “This unfortunate situation is having an adverse impact across the country and this effort is our small way to assist those families of federal employees who serve in the Pawnee Nation.”
